    1. I actually stopped reading this book at one point in search of a decent synopsis. had the best one, and it fits perfectly. The problem was I was really waiting for this book to take off. It never did, it maintained an easy pace throughout. It didn't start off grabbing me right out of the gate, it was more like gate opened on the first page, and you experience the events of a slow and crazy racehorse just kind of meandering along. Despite that, something made me keep reading, and I finished it's [...]


    2. I have to admit, at first I was like-wait-this is a Blake Crouch book? What is the point of this book? And then it got stalkerish and then the ending-BAM! So stay with it-even if you don't love it at first. The payoff at the end is worth it.



    3. I've read Crouch before and yet he managed to completely and pleasantly surprise me with this one. Famous isn't Crouch's typical work, it isn't a thriller, there are no supernatural elements. It is, of course, still twisted, in a good way. Perfectly appropriate for our celebrity obsessed society, this is a story of a man improbably named Lancelot Blue Dunkquist, a proper nobody who just happens to look like a popular movie star. It's a perverse version of an American dream, if you can be anyone [...]


    4. Wow. I have never, EVER met a Blake Crouch book I didn't like but this one? Wow. Just wow. I can't even stop thinking about it. Or quoting it. Or thinking about it. Honestly, I think the best part of getting a tablet/kindle is now being able to read AAAAALL the Blake Crouch books. After reading Desert Places, years ago, I was so disappointed that only five of his books could be purchased as actual paper books. So naturally the first thing I did when I got my new tablet was purchase a Blake Crouc [...]


    5. Unlike everyone else, I did not love this book. I didn't think it was deep; the message is apparent almost right away and it's something that's been around since the Gilded Age, so it was hardly a revelation. The protagonist wasn't pathetic enough to be pitiable, or human enough to be sympathetic or even horrible enough to be entertaining. For me, this was like watching a seagull slowly drown itself in the pursuit of some fish. I didn't really care at all, but I wasn't satisfied experiencing it [...]


    6. Famous is a lot less gory than most of Crouchs' other novels. The narrator was very interesting to read and idiosyncratic. I loved him, he reminded me of a sociopathic Napolean Dynamite. His word choice was so goofy. His professional debut as a stage actor in New York was hilarious, definitely my favorite part. This novel is a little more introspective and philosophical than the straight horror I thought it might be. A good story with lots of laughs and a few good wtf? moments. Very entertaining [...]



    7. This is a long novella length story, and a fair bit different from others I've read by this author. Although there are moderately horrific elements, it's essentially a darkly humorous contemporary tale, about a man called Lancelot Blue Dunquist who happens to be the exact double of famous Hollywood star James Jansen. All his life he has had a plan, and one day circumstances conspire to make him put it into action.I love the way Blake Crouch writes, and this story is great fun. As with Run and Sn [...]


    8. This is a book that really makes you reflect on the emptiness of our celebrity heavy 'culture'. It is also chilling. I wanted to read it because in the Blake Crouch show Good Behavior, Letty often hints that she is writing a book just like this one. It is also a twist in the tale story. Lance is a 38 year old loser who works as a paralegal and lives with his parents in North Carolina. He has pretty much let life pass him by. he has no friends, no girl friend, he is socially awkward and inept. Bu [...]


    9. A strange story of a man who looks like a famous movie star and how he attempts to take over the other man's life with unexpected consequences.




    10. The book was well-written from the perspective of a psychological profile of a sociopath. Honestly, I'm not particularly sure how I can rate this less than 4 stars when it was written well enough for me to be so thoroughly horrified and disgusted by the protagonist.So, please, understand that the four 4 stars are not because I enjoyed the story. The 4 stars are not because I thought the characters were absolutely wonderful. The 4 stars are given because this book was so skilled at making me so r [...]


    11. This was a little bit of a chore to read for the first half. It was a bit boring, but I think what really made it hard was that the guy was unlikable and crazy. The ending did nothing to change my opinion there, but if nothing else, at least it went pretty fast.There was enough humor to keep it interesting, although it was pretty dry. About all I got out of the book other than entertainment was that in Hollywood, looks seem to be really important.


    12. Started reading Blake Crouch last year and the Wayward Pines series was brilliant (much better than the TV mini series). This is another good read although a little far fetched but the book builds up towards a shocking twist at the end.


    13. so unlike the other books of his that I've readbut I love the element of surprise, which this still delivers



    14. I LOVE this author, and LOVED this book! Blake Crouch has become one of my favorite authors. I love his page turners! Add this one to your to read list. Then ENJOY!


    15. It was a very interesting, thought provoking read especially given that the main character was rather dull, uninteresting, and not very intelligent. The ending was perfect for the main character!



    16. I really enjoyed this story, Blake Crouch for me is a hit and miss at times, but this book was a hit. We have all been told at one time or another "You know who you look like?" and then someone says you look like a particular celebrity. In the case of Lancelot Dunquist, he looks just like the hottest star in Hollywood James Jansen so after being fired he drains his lifesavings to go to Hollywood and find out what it would be like to actually be James Jansen. His journey takes many unexpected tur [...]


    17. I love Hollywood. I love how some person decides to create some kind of art and attains notoriety for it. I love how people then take everything that person with notoriety does and puts it under a microscope, projecting every single one of their insecurities onto a celebrity without even realizing it. I love the narcissistic Hollywood bubble that's filled with lunacy and rehab. I love the ass kissing and the people who are terrible role models getting mad at celebrities for being terrible role m [...]


    18. I enjoyed following the protagonist's journey and seeing the author's take on how far people will go when they are obsessed with a celebrity - and have the bonus of also looking like said celebrity. Unfortunately, the ending did not work(view spoiler)[Of course, you can't easily assume someone's life or really know who they are when all you know is the media's take on a person. And it is a huge problem if you want to take over an actor's life, but you can't act outside of pretending to be that p [...]


    19. Now that's a Blake Crouch book like the ones I learned to love recently! (I did not like Desert Places)It's a great character study. The way Lancelot's descend into madness is portrayed is endearing in a sinister way. The reader keeps wanting to hate this guy but unable not to care about him at least a bit. It is also very funny in some parts.


    20. I do not know how to make of this. I wish Blake Crouch would write another chapter for this book. I really want to know what every character is doing / reacting at the end. The whole time the story line remained flat lined, I knew from the beginning what the main character was going to do, but the story didn't take off. A few times in the middle of reading this book, I was thinking if I should stop reading this, it's kinda boring but still kinda interesting. Finally finished the book and a twist [...]


    21. What if Holden Caufield never grew up and was still the same douch St 40,living in his parents basement and working /getting fired from some menial office job? Now what if he happened to be the doppelganger for a well-known actor? Well he'd probably take his savings and go pretend to be that actor, maybe even kill him and take over his life. I'd not read Catcher in the Rye when I read this book, but read it soon after and I couldn't help but think how similar these characters were, in voice, att [...]


    22. I thought the ending could've been better, and probably somewhat longer (hey, it happens), but none of that diminishes how good a book this was. This was just one of those really pleasant little surprises that turned out to be a heck of a lot of fun. Every time I put it down, I spent the rest of the day wishing I hadn't, and waiting to pick it up again. I would've liked a little more psychosis towards the end of it, but again, a great read, and I highly recommend it.


    23. I'm going out on a limb and putting this in my humor category but it's pretty dark humor. I liked the character arc of Lance and each time he ramped up the game I got nervous and wanted to find out what would happen next. The ending was unexpected and made the book memorable. Lance Dunkquist reminded me a bit of Emma Bovary. This book may not be for everybody, but for those who love dark humor, this is it.


    24. An in-depth dissection of how fame, and the obsession of fame, often leads to destructive behavior. The main character, Lance, through years of planning, finds out that he resembles a well-known actor. Faced with the possibility of posing as him to get wealth and attention, he sets off on a downward spiral. Gave me the impression of a good film noir. Great dialogue, good narrative voice but the ending kinda came out of nowhere.
